Tameka Foster wants you to know that…

Tameka Foster is currently at home nursing her sick 2-year-old son back to health. We know that because she tweeted a pic of the child stretched out on a sofa today. She wants us to know that she’s a good mother. Or she could be posting pics of the baby in order to gain sympathy.

As you know, Foster, 45, has filed yet another legal action in the ongoing child custody dispute with her ex-husband, Usher Raymond, 33.

This time Foster, who still uses her ex-husband’s last name, seeks to strip Usher of his parental rights to their two boys. After TMZ broke the story this morning, Foster took to her Twitter page to grouse about the media coverage, and about her ex in particular.

“Haha I love how this guy manages to always be the victim. So masterful. Its amazing,” she tweeted. In another tweet, she wrote, “To play innocent victim? Oh. That’s crafty… & hilarious.”

But wouldn’t it be considered “crafty” to exploit your sick child on a social networking site to prove a point?


Beyonce Baby Bump Watch 2011

Vaudeville singer Beyonce was spotted entering her Manhattan office building today. The “Countdown” singer wore spandex leggings, boots with 6-inch heels, and enough makeup to choke a horse. The excess makeup and foundation gave her face a ghostly appearance. Quite frankly she looks ridiculous.

Conrad Murray Sentenced to Maximum of 4 years

Michael Jackson’s unrepentant former personal physician will spend the next 4 years in the LA County jail rather than in prison due to overcrowding in the state prison system.

Earlier today Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor sentenced Murray to the maximum the law allows for involuntary manslaughter in the death of Jackson, who was 50 when he died on June 25, 2009. Murray was accused of giving Jackson an infusion of Propofol, a surgical IV anesthetic that is usually administered only in a clinical setting under close supervision.

Referring to Murray as a “disgrace to the medical profession,” Pastor noted that it was irrelevant if Michael might have died in the care of another doctor. He said Jackson died because of the actions of Dr. Murray.

Murray’s attorney Ed Chernoff requested that Murray be sentenced to community service. But the judge denied the request. Chernoff said Jackson was a “drug seeker,” but he acknowledged that Murray was wrong for providing him with the drugs that killed him.


In Case You Missed It: Love & Hip Hop: Episode 3

Last night’s episode of VH1’s ‘Love & Hip Hop‘ introduced the addition of former R&B singer Teairra Mari to the cast, thanks to her recent DUI problem (which may or may not have been staged). Most of the scuttlebutt on Twitter.com last night was related to Teairra’s poor acting skills, and the lightening of her skin over the past two years.

A little birdie told us that Teairra had to audition for the role of “friend” to the cast of L&HH. Obviously the producers liked what they saw.

In Case You Missed It: Basketball Wives: LA Reunion, Pt 2

Last night’s episode of ‘Basketball Wives: LA Reunion Show was anticlimactic. Jackie continued to exert her dominance over everyone else by bringing her submissive husband, Doug Christie, onstage. The former NBA star shared the secret behind the couple’s 16 wedding ceremonies: respect for each other. He left out submission, but you get the point.

It sounds easy but it’s difficult to respect someone else when you don’t have respect for yourself. It was fun to see the other women look on with jealousy and envy in their eyes as Doug spoke.

T.I. and Tiny: The Family Hustle Sneak Peek (video)

Last night, following ‘Love & Hip Hop’ episode 3, VH1 aired a sneak peek of T.I.’s new reality series ‘T.I. and Tiny: The Family Hustle‘, which premieres Monday, Dec. 5.

The series is based on the post-prison life of rapper T.I., and the different hustles that T.I., Tiny and their children have going on. For instance, T.I.’s son Domani, whom he dotes on, is following in his father’s footsteps by picking up the mic.

Tiny’s friends, who sometimes travel with the couple on the road, provide the necessary drama in the series. But the focus seems to be primarily on cash money, and T.I.’s drive to keep the cash pipelines open now that his legal problems are over.

“No matter how long it took for me to get it right, it never get wrong again,” says T.I. emphatically.

He adds: “The most important thing to me in the world: God, family, hustle, in that order.”

T.I. Caves Under Pressure

Earlier this week we told you about the fires that rapper T.I. ignited when he voiced his opinion on gays and the power they wield in the music industry.

In a cover story for VIBE magazine’s end of the year issue, T.I., 30, said “gay people are too sensitive” and he repeated an obscene joke about gay sex made by comedian Tracey Morgan before he too was shut down by the gay elite and forced to apologize.

It didn’t take long for the gays to strike back — and very soon thereafter, less than 72 hours later to be exact, T.I. crumbled under the pressure.

In a phone call to TMZ’s Harvey Levin yesterday, T.I. backed down from his earlier statements that one specialty group did not have the right to shut down the opinions of others because censorship is simply un-American.

Instead of sticking to his guns, T.I. allowed Levin to back him into a corner by agreeing that racism and the civil rights struggles somehow correlates with the current gay rights agenda.

Levin quickly put up a post with the headline: “T.I. [Says] Black People Can Be Oversensitive, Too”.

We’re not attacking T.I. because he supports Sandrarose.com, but the phone call, and its aftermath, were a disappointment to say the least.
